  • The Seven Churches of Asia Minor: The Churches in Revelation

    If you have ever read about the seven churches of Asia Minor, or the seven churches in Revelation, and wondered what they are all about, this book will help you get a deeper insight into the character of these churches. You will get a look at their geographical locations, their historical backgrounds, and their experiences that shaped the way Christ addressed them. Christ introduced himself to these seven churches in seven different ways because their works were different, and he wrote them according to their works.

The Seven Churches of Asia Minor, (The Churches in Revelation) will take you through each church one by one; it will help you to identify actions for which they were chastened or encouraged. Five out of these seven churches were admonished, warned, and given specific steps to take for their restoration. They could take these steps of face the consequences that were meted out by Christ himself. This book will certainly be an eye-opener for any church or individual who are curious to know more about the seven churches in the book of Revelation.

    Some Christians and Jews believe that Muhammad wrote the Qur’an and do not know that he was illiterate and could not read or write. Others have not read the Qur’an and do not know its contents or message. This book is an attempt to clear misconceptions and answer questions such as who wrote the Qur’an, and how was it preserved, and if it is divine in origin, what is the evidence for its

    The book illustrates the message of the Qur’an and discusses such concepts as the Oneness of God, and our accountability to Him. It also explores God’s prophets and God’s divine revelations, as well as rituals of worship, morals and ethics, family values and our interaction as human beings with one another.

    There are similarities between the Qur’an and the New Testament regarding morals and ethics, and our accountability to God, yet there are differences regarding the divinity of Jesus Christ and the concept of the Trinity and salvation.

    The Qur’an acknowledges God’s blessings on the Children of Israel and relates to us the story of Abraham and Moses. We are close to God and favored by Him because of what we do, not because of our ancestry.

    Islam is based on the Qur’an and the teachings of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). Few Christians or Jews know his life story, his noble character or the message that he preached. This book describes the lessons that we learn from Muhammad, and clears misconceptions about him.
